What is the Ombudsmans Office?
Many people are familiar with the Hong Kong ICAC, but they do not know much about the Ombudsman.
Established in 1989, it is a statutory body directly responsible to the Chief Executive of Hong Kong. It is independent of the Hong Kong Government and is responsible for monitoring the public administration of Hong Kong. It is responsible for dealing with and solving problems arising from inappropriate administration of government departments and public institutions.
In order to remain independent, without the explicit approval of the Chief Executive, the Ombudsman shall not hold any gainful position other than that of the Commissioner or engage in any remunerative occupation other than that of the Commissioner.
The political circle noted that in 2013, the official website of the State Letter and Visit Bureau forwarded the article There is an Ombudsmans Office in Hong Kong to monitor the governmentsinaction. It is mentioned that the Commissioner may submit a report to the Chief Executive if the department or agency concerned fails to take sufficient action within a reasonable period of time.
If the Commissioner considers that there are serious misconduct or injustice, he may submit another report to the Chief Executive and the report to the Legislative Council.
However, the Ombudsman does not have the power to enforce the law and to punish. Its greatest power is to publish the investigation report to the society. Government departments can also make counter-suggestions to the recommendations of the office and state their reasons. However, once finalized, the recommendations of the Ombudsman have always been `resolutely and thoroughly implemented. A spokesman for the Ombudsmans Office confirmed that although the Office could submit reports to the Chief Executive and the Legislative Council when government departments refused to implement the recommendations, this had not happened.
